In this age of mass pro­duc­tion, it’s re­fresh­ing when some­thing is made by hand rather than ma­chine. So com­mit­ted is Roohi Qureshi to mak­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally and so­cially con­scious choices that she’s opened Leaves of Trees, a mod­ern-day apothe­cary that car­ries all-nat­u­ral soaps, lip balms, de­odor­ants, body but­ters, lo­tions, scrubs and ar­gan oil. Qureshi, who’s also a doc­tor spe­cial­iz­ing in oc­cu­pa­tional health, cre­ates small batches of each of her prod­ucts in store, for­mu­lat­ing them with un­re­fined shea, co­coa but­ter and Moroccan ar­gan oil, and in­fus­ing them with es­sen­tial oils such as eu­ca­lyp­tus, laven­der, rose car­damom, frank­in­cense or pink grape­fruit.
